Alfred Effiong joins Balzan

Balzan announced that Maltese international striker Alfred Effiong has become a Balzan player following his transfer from Qormi.

Alfred Effiong made his Premier League debut with St. George’s after joining the club from Kercem Ajax. He went on to play for Hamrun Spartans, Qormi, Marsaxlokk, Valletta and Gzira United.

Balzan President Anton Tagliaferro said “We are delighted to have added a striker of Alfred’s calibre to the squad. I now believe we have a fantastic squad of Maltese players made up of a very good blend of youth and experience – complimented by some excellent overseas players.”

Coach Oliver Spiteri added “I would like to thank the President for his continued support of the club. Alfred’s addition to the team will help make our ambition of repeating last year’s achievement of a top 4 spot more achievable – although there is a lot of work to do and 33 games ahead of us before this ambition becomes a reality. The squad has prepared well and we are looking forward to the new season.”
